Community Partners

Small businesses often have limited options for affordable financing when they are ready to grow, especially if they are relatively new, need a relatively small loan or are part of a population that is under-served by traditional lenders. In partnership with universities and credit unions, Business Impact NW has created a deliberate, stepped process, combining capacity building with low-cost business loans. By increasing your knowledge of business management, you’ll be better prepared to successfully grow with the help of a microloan.

  • Communities are powered by small business and when you empower small businesses, you are making an investment in local communities.
